Self-compacting concrete (SCC) was first developed in late 80’s in Japan. SCC is well known for its self-consolidation and able to occupy spaces in the formwork without vibration and become new interesting topic in Construction and Building Materials Research. The aim of this review is to summaries the previous research work related to utilization of waste minimization in SCC from 2009 to 2015 through available literature. It is important to expose new researchers on concept and fundamental theory developed by previous researchers as a reference and guidance in their research. There were a lot of opportunity to be explored in developing SCC especially in utilizing waste material as replacement materials or additives used and mix design method for rheological improvement in SCC. However, these review only focusing on waste materials that have significant to be taken care to reduce environmental impact such as waste product from construction industry and by product industry. As conclusion, this paper will provide significant idea and useful information to those new to SCC and fellow researchers for future studies in utilizing waste materials in SCC mix design.
